why is this version not available on rubygems? Could you please, please release a new version?
👍 for 0.5.0 rubygem
Would indeed be nice to have this version on rubygems...
The encoding issues fixed in this GitHub repository versus what's available on rubygems.org is actively causing some developers time. Please update rubygems.org, it's a simple 'gem push'!
@cthielen: do you have a testing framework that can make it as simple as 'gem push'? There are lots of discussions on various bugs about this. It isn't just a 'gem push' and I'm not going to push something that I don't use without a solid test framework (the specs for ruby-net-ldap are pretty good, but not sufficient).
@halostatue I don't follow your argument. There have been releases of this gem. That's what this commit demonstrates. However those releases are not available through common distribution systems (rubygems.org). Forcing people into source dependencies from GitHub does not solve any bugs it just makes it more cumbersome.
I don't really understand why you'd want to mark new versions in the source but not make them easily available.
It's not released unless it's on rubygems. I am not actively involved in the management or development of this project anymore and I have no need for LDAP, so I can't responsibly be the person who does that push.
I need to check with the folks who have said they are interested in assisting on #70, but the only thing that I am willing to do with this is work with people who want to become new maintainers to assist them in verifying a release, preparing new releases, and then actually releasing.
